The Galician Blond are of the North Spanish type and are used primarily for meat production.
Their normal coloration is cream to golden red. Originating in northwestern Spain,
the original type, which was found in Monteroso and Carballino, is almost extinct.
Simmental, Swiss Brown and South Devon have been used at different times to improve
the breed during the 1900s.
